This Week’s #GolfChat Questions

Q1: The Sentry Tournament of Champions kicked off the 2022 PGA with golf from Hawaii and into East Coast homes in prime time. Did this mark the beginning of the 2022 golfing season to you? Or is it the Masters, or maybe when you can get out and play on a regular basis? #GolfChat

Q2: We saw record setting low scores at the Sentry and many of you were commenting on in a negative way. What do we want to see from pro golfers and tournament set-ups? Birdie fests, grind out pars, or something in between? Please tell us why. #GolfChat

Q3: The Sentry kicked off the PGA’s ban on green-reading books to mixed feelings from the players. Better putters like the ban and others don’t. Rate yourself (1 low, 5 high) as a putter and what is your green reading process? #GolfChat

Q4: The men’s game is looking to shrink development or mini tours, but the women’s game is looking to expand opportunities for their players. Let us know what you think is the right approach and what you think of the mini tours. #GolfChat

Q5: We saw lots of new golf clubs, balls, and equip. launch last week. Some of us will jump right in, others my dip a toe into the new, and others wait for the previous generation prices drop. No matter, do you trust the technology being marketed? #GolfChat

Q6: Some very cold temps hit the US in the past week or so and I’m hoping that those of us that can get out in cold weather can give their best tip for playing in less than idea conditions.  #GolfChat

This Week’s #GolfChat Questions

Q1: In his Perfect Putt news letter this week @DoerflerJared talks about NFT’s in golf and Links DOA who’s goal is to purchase a Top 100 golf course and is selling membership NFT’s. Courious if you follow the NFT market and if you have $ to invest would you invest in a golf course?

#GolfChat

Q2: Long time GolfChatter, @Portland_John, sent in an Golf.com article about a course’s new fee structure that gives jr golfers (under 18 yrs old) free rounds in 2022. Little Falls GC in central MN is looking at the free rounds as an investment in their future. To help grow or kick off a Jr program at your “home” course would you favor free rounds even if a small increase to your fees were needed to fund it?  #GolfChat

Q3: TaylorMade launched their new driver today on social media and Carbonwood tech and Callaway put a 30 minute commercial on The Golf Channel this afternoon so lots of twitter traffic questioning everything from price, performance, and even reviewers. Do you believe the hype around new tech, or is it just the big golf companies trying to get into your wallet?  #GolfChat

Q4: Some of us often play as a single while for others it’s something that doesn’t happen often. Do you dread who you might get matched up with if you’re not part of a foursome, do you look forward to it, or do you hope to go off as a single? #GolfChat

Q5: Plantation Course at Kapalua Resort will host the opening of 2022 PGA  year with 38 of 39 eligible player in the field. What is it that gets us so excited for this tourney, is it the elite no cut field, golf being played in the sun and warm temps, stunning views, or just the fact that prime time golf is back on? #GolfChat

Q6: Around the green, do you use different clubs with one swing, or do you go with one club with different swings? What was the biggest deciding factor to use the method you use? #GolfChat

This Week’s #GolfChat Questions

Q1: B4 we get to Tiger, talk QBE Shootout. Lexi Thompson paired with Bubba Watson which had some on Twitter asking for a full PGA/LPGA event.  If the same format was kept, (Scramble, Modified Alternate Shot, Four-Ball) would you support/watch a crossover event? #GolfChat

Q2: Tiger will tee it up this week with his son in the PNC Championship, the last event we saw Tiger play back in 2020 and 10 months after his car accident?  Is this must watch event for you, or at least peek in on to see what Tiger has at this point on his road to recovery?  #GolfChat

Q3: We have a love of lists on #GolfChat and for good reason, many of you do a great job of sharing info that way. Golf Digest and Golf Magazine love their lists as well and The Top 100 Teachers list is out and I wonder how you would measure what makes a good golf instructor? #GolfChat

Q4: We’re in the “Silly Season” of pro and broadcast golf this time of year and @golfismental put forth an idea a few days ago to scrap The Match and replace it with former Ryder Cup teams playing rematches. Based on the popularity of the Ryder Cup, this could be an idea worth considering. What do you think? #GolfChat

Q5: If you could have 1 non-pro player job in the golf world what would it be? #GolfChat

This Week’s #GolfChat Questions

Q1:  Collin Morikawa went to bed Sat. night with 5 shot lead and new world #1 ranking, except it didn’t happen. We say “1 shot at a time”, but do we? How do you really manage expectations in golf? #GolfChat

Q2: PGA Tour Live is moving from NBC Sports Gold to ESPN+ in 2022 and increasing coverage to 35 events. For the $70 cost of ESPN +, do you think this expanded package is a viable alterative to regular broadcasts?   #GolfChat

Q3: Jordan Spieth and Henrik Stenson were penalized two stokes in the finial round of the Hero this past Sunday for hitting off the wrong tee box on #9.
